So, remember on that introductory post of mine I mentioned something about ‘BJD’s’? Well this my friends is what a BJD is. They are hand-cast in resin (which is a true artform in itself as many pieces do not come out of the molds correctly) and created from a hand-sculpted work of art. Each delicate piece is carefully molded as to properly fit together and could be easily broken with a harsh fall or applied pressure. They are held together by a thick elastic cord which can be tightened when the doll seems to be ‘floppy’ or ‘disjointed’. There is an art form in being able to paint a face this small, which is why I endeavor to improve my skill of customizing these beautiful pieces of art (and maybe someday I will be able to sculpt one of my own, as of yet, I am nowhere near good enough to do so).
